Mohanlal’s Aarattu to hit screens during Pooja holidays
Though uncertainty regarding the reopening of theatres continue, the makers of Mohanlal starrer ‘Aarattu’ have announced their release plans. They are eyeing to release the film theatrically on October 14 during the Pooja holidays. With ‘Marakkar’ already scheduled for Onam release in August, two Mohanlal films are slated to hit screens back to back.
Apart from the superstar’s fans, industry insiders have also pinned huge hopes as they firmly believe both these films have the potential to revive theatrical business in Kerala.
Directed by B Unnikrishnan, ‘Aarattu’ promises to be a mass entertainer with all the essential commercial ingredients in it. Udhayakrishna has scripted the film in which Mohanlal plays a larger-than-life character named Neyyattinkara Gopan. Popular South Indian actress Shraddha Srinath plays the female lead. Maestro AR Rahman will be seen making a cameo appearance in a song sequence. The supporting cast also includes actors like Siddique, Sai Kumar, Nedumudi Venu, Indrans, Lukman, ‘KGF’ fame Garuda Ram, Vijayaraghavan, Swasika, Rachana Narayanankutty and Sheela.
